The Democracy Club: The journalism we need

Kevin Marsh, editor of Radio 4's Today programme, on journalism and the transformation of civic culture.

"A mass of data is used by critics of both representative politics and journalism to argue that civic culture in Britain is damaged and becoming dysfunctional. But does the data really support that conclusion ? It seems more likely that cvic culture is undergoing a transformation - but one that's systematically misread. The key to the new civic culture is trusted information - but we need a different kind of journalism (and representative politics) from the one that's gown up over the past decade to provide that key."
